foxyshadis: I think something like 20% would overwhelm a carburated engine until it was cleaned out, with fuel injectors I have no idea.

Actually IIRC it's not really the percentage. The diesel fuel does not vaporize from the carburetor bowl. It just sits in the bowl until it gums up the venturi holes. If you repeatedly mixed diesel into your gas tank in even in very small percentages eventually you'll need to clean your carburetor.

With injectors I believe you run the risk of carbon deposits fouling your injectors.

Marcintosh: clogged injectors and fuel rail issues and poisoned sensors. Tainted pumps, filters, hoses and lines. Oh forgot about the tank cleaning and the Haz-Mat issue- where to put all that useless poison?

It is called T-Mix in the industry, the transport company will send someone to pump the tank out and then take the t-mix to a terminal that has the capability to separate the diesel from the gas using a type of cracking tower. It is a big time no-no to cross drop as it is called, and can cost the transport company 10's of thousands of $$$$$.
